Or checkout into a new directory. Your problem is that you had a full
directory structure, then tried to checkout the same structure in place, so it
sees a bunch of files that already exist and things don't work. If you want
to keep the same path on disk, but have it be in a working copy, yes, either
delete or move aside the current data, checkout into the same path, and go
from there.

If it's in a working copy, you can just "svn commit" the change. If it's not,
you have to copy the changes to a working copy and then commit it.
